Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
I lost the recipe I had for this cream cheese frosting/filling and found it here. I guess it's not my secret anymore! I use the filling (always a double batch) with any kind of cake, and layer it with fruit, usually strawberries or raspberries. To prevent the cake from absorbing the juice and color from the berries, I spread a thin layer of the frosting on the bottom of the cake layer before I put it on top of the fruit, which already sits on a thick layer of frosting. The raves I get from this are unbelievable. My nephew who doesn't eat desserts asked for a second helping. My boss--who is stingy with compliments--took a bite, stopped, forgot himself, and raved about it. And EVERYBODY asks for the recipe. When I offered the recipe for the filling only, they didn't understand. Use the filling with ANY cake, ANY fruit, or use your imagination with chocolate, nuts, or other flavors. Once the finished cake is refrigerated, the filling sets to a wonderful texture, lighter than your average frosting but firmer. If you want to impress somebody, use this filling.
